Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery is ideal for those who wish to tighten up the abdomen and remove excess skin after giving birth or losing weight, for those who want to remove stubborn, excess skin and exercise-resistant fat in the midsection.
Tummy Tuck Procedure
Tummy tuck surgery not only removes excess skin and fat, but also tightens weakened, underlying muscles in the abdomen. The body contouring procedure is done under general anesthesia while you are sleeping and takes several hours to complete.
Patients may return to work and resume daily activities within two weeks. Small drains are placed to assist the body in riding itself of excess fluid, and are also removed within a week. Results are visible immediately, but compression garments will need to be worn to help minimize swelling.
